September 18th, 2009

Note:  This program includes racial stereotyping themes that may be offensive to some listeners.

In our continuing series of rare airchecks of "Pick and Pat", a 1930s comedy-variety show featuring blackface comedians Pick Padgett and Pat Malone we hear an excerpt of the episode of June 14, 1937.

Pick and Pat talk about one of their short friends and a lawsuit they're involved with with their producer, Frank MacMahon, an ongoing gag on the show at this time. Tenor Edward Roecker sings an unidentified song.  The program originally aired on CBS and was sponsored by Dill's Best and Model tobacco.  The excerpt is the second of three parts of the program - parts one and three are, unfortunately, lost.

The show was transferred from original WABC aircheck lacquer recorded by National Recording Company, New York, and was previously lost.
